I know you can't read it because it's online, I also did not greet you on Facebook because you don't have an account there either. I am printing this open letter for you so you can read it as well, because it is meant for you and for the whole world to see (so its online).
Anyway, before anything else I would like to greet you a Happy Mother's Day. I know we disagree a lot, we fight like in a brawl and almost want to choke each other's throat. We scream at the top of our lungs and then at the end of the day when we are calmed we would say sorries and tell each other we love each other. You also knew you were the one who thought me that I should answer back/ fight back (alam na alam mo yan!) Because before I would just take in everything, keep quiet and sit on the corner of my bed and cry. I know sometimes I hurt you with the hurtful words I say, I didn't mean them. They are just words of an angry/hurt person who wants to hurt back. You are the best mom ever and I can't think of having any other mother in the world but you. You are perfectly imperfect and I love you for that.
You are always there for me whenever I needed someone . I hope you can feel that I love even if you think I don't and that I neglect everything you do for me, for us. Tasha practically grew-up with you. Without you there for me I don't know where would I be , where we will be right now. I don't even think it will be possible for me to reach whatever I achieved now without you supporting me all the way. Thank you Mama for everything.
- Thank you for the beautiful genes you passed on to me. You are so cute and petite its impossible to think you are 76!
- Thank you for passing your kakikayan / fashion sense to me.
- Thank you for taking care of my daughter Tasha.
- Thank you for teaching me the value of money and how to work hard for it and not just spend and expect free money without working hard for it.
- Thank you for spoiling us by doing things we should be doing for you not the other way around.
I love you Mama and I hope I will get the opportunity to give you the best things in life you deserve because I know you deserve more than what you are getting right now. I pray that we will have more time with you so you can see when I finally achieve what you dream for me to achieve.
Again, Happy Mother's Day. I hope you are happy with the kind of children and grand children you have, and if not, I hope you give us more time to make you happy.
P.S. This Mama Spice Girls video is so fit for what I feel for you right now. I'll play this song now for you to hear and here's the lyrics so you can sing-along as well!
